Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites



Recently I shared with you my review of Natural Delights Medjool Dates.  We love dates and these were the best ones we have ever had.  With the Natural Delights Medjool Dates I made these amazing Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites.  Earlier in May I had posted a recipe for Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Energy Bites and since then I have been searching for a recipe that didn't use any peanut butter.  I found this recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction which looked like it would be good to try.  I made a few changes to adjust for what ingredients I had on hand.  These turned out great and tasted best chilled.  I told Hasan they were chocolate to get him to try them and he loved them!  He even asked for some the next day.  I made half the recipe but next time will be making the whole recipe since they didn't last very long!

Natural Delights Medjool Dates Review {and a Giveaway - CAN only}

Almond Date Rolls, Regular Medjool Dates and Coconut Date Rolls

One of our favourite things to snack on is dates.  For us, dates are not just for breaking our fast during Ramadan, they are a everyday treat!  I like to have one when I'm craving something sweet.  Medjool have always been our favourite type to eat.  So I was very excited when I was sent some of Natural Delights Medjool Dates to try.  We have eaten Medjool dates before but when we ate our first sample of Natural Delights Medjool Dates there was no question that these were the BEST Medjool Dates we've ever had!  They were very fresh and sweet.  They were not dried out at all and had the perfect texture.

Baked Whole Wheat Cinnamon Applesauce Doughnuts {SRC}


It's the last Monday of the month which means it's Secret Recipe Club.  This month I was assigned Making Miracles written by Rebekah.  Rebekah recently had a beautiful baby girl.  Congratulations Rebekah!  I couldn't believe that after having her baby, she was still updating her blog...WOW!!!  After I had my boys, whenever I had some spare time all I wanted to do was sleep.  But then again I wasn't blogging back then either.

Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa



Recently I posted my review for RW Garcia Tortilla Chips and 5-Seed Crackers.  We loved having the tortilla chips with some Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa.  In the summer when we were in the States I picked up a couple of tins of Fire Roasted Tomatoes.  I've never seen Fire Roasted Tomatoes in Canada before and have seen other blogs using them so I was curious to try them out.  I found making salsa with Fire Roasted Tomatoes made the salsa slightly sweeter.  I usually buy salsa but really it is so  easy to whip up that I should be making it at home.  Also by making it at home I know exactly what going into it as well!

RW Garcia Chips & 5-Seed Crackers Review



One of our favorite snacks to munch on is nachos and salsa.  So I was very excited when I found out I was going to being receiving some chips from RW Garcia!  I had never tried their chips before but after reading their website I loved that they were all-natural, made with organic corn and were verified non-GMO.
